for a good chunk of the night. I've heard this message before, but for some reason it really sank in last night. So I reflected on my own motivations and aspirations and think I've finally started to feel comfortable with my artistic expression. I need to stop comparing my art to others and improve at my own pace.
I also need to stop rolling my eyes when I say, "my art." What I make IS art. And I don't need to qualify that in my head with statements like, "if you consider comics art" or, "sketches are technically art."
